Meet The Taisce Cowl

Press play on this video and Carol will explain pattern construction and some of the

tips and techniques you'll find inside this learn to knit course:


"I finished the Taisce cowl and I love the construction! I usually have a phobia to seaming but the video was excellent and it was so easy to do!"


"I just finished my second Taisce blanket square and decided while I had the pattern in my mind, I would start the Taisce cowl. I’m only into the second section but loving the construction."

Meet Your Teacher

Eimear Earley lives in Dublin, Ireland, with two small humans and a supportive spouse. Eimear originally learned to knit as a schoolchild, dabbling with leftovers of yarn and absolutely no concept of gauge or ease during her teenage years. After spending her student years playing with molten glass, she now gets her creative kicks from knitting and spinning wool – much more practical pursuits. Eimear loves to reinterpret old Irish things into modern knitwear, from ancient gold artifacts to less ancient cable knitting. She is also partial to a bit of garter stitch, stripes, and tea. Eimear’s work has been published in Knitty, Cosy Knits, and Outlander Knitting.
